More than 60 elementary and secondary teachers from the different municipalities of Benguet have been trained on sports coaching last Sept. 22 to 24 at the Benguet Sports Complez in Wangal, La Trinidad.

The training coincided with the ongoing International Martial Arts Festival in South Korea being participated by the Philippine Team which includes Cordilleran Glen Gunan who will compete in pencak silat.

Benguet is the first in the entire region to conduct the training. This is in response to the inclusion of pencak silat as the newest martial arts sport in next year’s Palarong Pambansa.

Muay Thai is again proposed to be a demonstration sport while wushu is already included in the annual event.

The participants learned the basic skills and techniques in wushu, Muay Thai, and pencak silat.

Wushu coach and King’s College sports coordinator Michael Humiding challenged the participants that as coaches they should first know and master the foundations of the sport, the skills, and how to teach the same. He emphasized on empathy and knowing the soft skills, understanding the temper of students, and disciplining in private while praising in public.

Coah and trainer Bryan Olod and several others handled the training in wushu and Muay Thai.

Pencak silat is the only martial arts sport that gives additional point to blocking or parrying when followed by a successful counter attack. This emphasizes the importance of defense. Also, the valid target is only the torso, front and back except the spine, although the entire body is protected with various gears and body armor similar to those used in other full-contact sports.

The training was the initiative of Benguet Division Sports coordinator Ceasar B. Luma-ang.
